Minneapolis may have granted municipal consent, but the fight is not over. The Federal Transit Administration needs to hear from you about how improperly and incompetently this project has been planned. Visit the Sample Letters page for inspiration! Contact information for Minneapolis City Council, Hennepin County Commissioners, Governor Dayton, and FTA administrators are below.
You can also stay informed by viewing the LRT Done Right Calendar. Attend a public meeting or send letters to elected officials.
